Tucked down a delightful alleyway in the beautiful Parnell Village is the hidden gem, The Fantail House. 

It is the largest store in New Zealand for genuine New Zealand Made products. 

We have a huge range of carefully selected, authentically-made pieces, from art & crafts to giftware and souvenirs. Selling directly to you on behalf of our Artisans.


The store was purposely built 40 years ago by Les Harvey - The Spirit of Parnell,

to provide a platform for New Zealand Artisans to showcase their talent and sell their wares. 

It was formerly known as The Elephant House for many years.

The building itself is a unique design, featuring enormous exposed macrocarpa beams,

high ceilings and multiple levels.


The Fantail House proudly continues to facilitate both established and emerging Artisans through out New Zealand. We are committed to supporting "shop local" and a more sustainable New Zealand.


We are happy to post or ship our products both domestically and all over the world.

Please contact us - we are happy to help.
